Update: Fat Lance Bass No Longer Nameless or Fat; Amuse-Biatch Sends Apologies to Aaron Sorkin for Not Giving a Rat's Ass About "Studio 60"

Our thanks to reader Patricia, who earned another pair of wings for a blogger-cherub by correctly identifying the nameless fat Lance Bass on last week's Top Chef episode as Nate Torrence, an actor currently appearing on Aaron Sorkin's oft-mocked, ailing, unbeloved Saturday Night Live-derivative reprocessed byproduct and Matthew Perry comeback vehicle Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.

And our apologies to Nate for calling him fat. IMDB says he appeared as himself on E!'s "101 Incredible Celebrity Slimdowns." And since E! can nE!vE!r to be wrong, our eyes must have deceived us, the blinding retinal after-image of that orange shirt concealing his true, incredibly slimmed down celebrityness. (By the way, is this the same diet that Best Week Ever's Christian Finnegan went on?)

he first appeared on my tv screen last year in an arby's commercial or two (heavier than he is now), then in some capitol one ads with david spade, now in an ad for renting a car for a school reunion (sorry--my memory's not holding the info for the product, only for its outro music!)...

He's funny, tho. But no star. Just a capable character actor. I always notice him when he's on screen 'cause he's so willing to be vulnerable and made fun of. (Uh, oh, ended in a preposition.)
